“I wanted to produce a good Pinot Noir that would, at the very least, be enjoyed by my family and friends”
— Sam Neill, Proprietor Two Paddocks
This weeks drop of the week comes from New Zealand from Central Otago which is home to some of the best Pinot Noir wines.
Ripe red fruit, violet, spice and some blackcurrant brooding aromatics. This wine demonstrates a soft and rich palate with an elegant drive and persistence.
This Pinot is an estate assumblage of Sam Neill’s Central Otago vineyards, typically from older vine material.
A Sam Neill favourite to be had with a Cottage Pie – “beef, mash potatoes, Central Otago Pinot Noir – what man could ask for more!?”
“We certainly enjoy drinking it, which makes it a little scarcer than perhaps it might be otherwise. But good luck in finding Two Paddocks anyway!”
